Blacklock is a modern version of the Great British chophouse. Set in an old electricity substation on the site of London"s oldest meat market. We take the best meat in the country from the award-winning farmer and butcher Philip Warren in Cornwall. We cook chops simply over our real charcoal grill with a little help from vintage Blacklock irons and serve it all up alongside cocktails for a fiver and wine on tap in our atmospheric subterranean chop mecca.

Second time here, I'll be back again, my favourite meat restaurant in London, I prefer it to way more expensive/famous ones in town.
Service always excellent, funny and friendly.

Had a great business lunch here, so long as one is not looking for peace and quiet. Busy atmosphere, great service, great steaks and good wine - all at the usual city price though...

Went to Blacklock for my 25th birthday and abosultey loved every bite and minute! Our server, Andrew, was outstanding! And the rest of the staff gave us great service as well. Our steaks were cooked and seasoned perfectly and the wine paired was fabulous. The cheese cake was to die for! We WILL be back again!!

Absolutely amazing highly recommend!! we came here our last night and London and had an absolute blast. Highly recommend the PITCHER of Old Fashion with the sampler platter. We ended up staying so long that we got a second dinner, the 600G prime rib also AMAZING. We then had the White Chocolate Pudding which was perfect as well. 100% 5 star experience for me.

Had a wonderful dining experience. Food and service were both amazing. The service was spot on and the attention we received welcoming and professional. Could not say enough good things. Oh yes, steaks and fries delicious. And the cheesecake was out of this world. Wish I didn’t live in the states because I would definitely keep coming back for my fix.

My wife and I spend a weekend in London every few months and are always on the lookout for good restaurants and bars. Our hotel was quite close to the Blacklock City and the reviews sounded like it was worth a visit and I have to say we weren't disappointed! Booked on line about a week before, on the day of the reservation received a call from the restaurant confirming our booking. We arrived slightly early on a Friday night and the place was very busy with city workers and tourists. We were shown straight to our table without a fuss and and got our drinks very quickly. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the drinks and the selection included some great craft beers. Limited number of starters but can recommend the squid. Our main meal was steak cooked to perfection with beef dripping fries and vegetable side dish. Great service, good atmosphere, good background music and excellent food. Look forward to visiting again.

This place in unbelievable, the food is incredible and the prices are brilliant across the food and drink menu! Go for the “All In” the stack of meat might look intimidating but you get a great variation of the different meats available! Ignore how full you are feeling order the cheesecake, you won’t be disappointed!

Meaty!!!!! My brother discovered this and took the family here, it’s great value and perfectly cooked meat!
My partners dream! Took him and we had the chops platter which is good value and comes with the pre-chop bites (little mouthfuls of delicious)! £5 cocktails and it’s a winner! Lovely atmosphere, easy to find, great staff who keep your water topped up (I love this as you don’t feel pushed to get more alcohol, just to stay hydrated), are friendly and relaxed. It’s a non-pretentious, meat lovers find! Good for any occasion!

Wonderful night, this was my second visit and the food was just as wonderful, and it was lovely that the waiters remembered me from the 4 weeks previously. If you’re not sure about what you’d like to eat the servers are very good and giving advice and convincing you to ‘treat yourself’ but it is worth it.

The meat was perfect, the cheesecake was ridiculously good, the cocktails were great and really reasonably priced; but all that was almost outdone by the service, which was the best I've had in a long time. Warm, well informed, relaxed. I'm intending to come back soon. Butcher Monday is a brilliant deal.

Busy but relaxed atmosphere, friendly service. Food outstanding and plentiful; the grilled lettuce a real and delectable pleasure. A bit loud for real conversation on Friday night because it was so busy, and the music could be more thoughtfully selected for atmosphere and ambiance, but will definitely return.

Best meal of our 2-week visit to the UK. Little John was our server, and he was an incredibly friendly, helpful staff member. He took the time to explain the menu to us and recommend both entrees and appetizers that were appropriate in quantity and variety for our group of 5. Everything was outstanding. We especially liked the cheesecake dessert.

I give top marks to Blacklock City for their food as well as the friendly, helpful staff - across the board.

Uhhhh still dreaming about the chops, they were so GOOD. Chips were outstanding and the cocktails were dangerously addictive. It's my second time at this branch of Blacklock and I will definitely be back. Staff are the nicest most helpful ever too. 100% recommend.
